Large bottle 2017 rose

"More elegant than ever, Turkey Flat's largest and most famous child is prettier and paler than ever, lacking nothing in exuberance of strawberry and raspberry fruit, culminating in a lick of succulent sweetness that won't mind a decent chill."

The Barossa Valley has the perfect climate and ideal grape varieties to produce Rosé. It is a wine style that should be enjoyed fresh and chilled.

Having been amongst the first to lead the great Rosé revival, it has been interesting to watch the popularity of this wine style grow.

Bucking the notion that Rosé is an afterthought, our 'Prince of Pink' has a special place in our hearts & is crafted with a clear purpose.

Sourced from specific sites achieving perfect yields promoting prominent primary fruit while retaining appealing palate cleansing crispness.

Enjoy with: Friends, under a tree on a hot, summer's day. Not summer? Just turn up the heat & serve with Asian or Spanish inspired spicy or seafood dishes. Best served chilled.

2017 Rosé - quality rosé from the get go.

Surprised to see this hit the WF pages so late in the season, and, shock horror, a $1 increase on RRP! That buck is likely going into the ‘proper’ winemaking going on in this wine, or at least, the elevation in quality, and decrease in reliance on sugar. I read somewhere that this is the driest version of TF Rose yet. Might be hearsay, but it’s in print now right here. Anyway, a good yardstick in bottle shops from here to Kingdom Come.

Deeelicious. Easy drink. Dry as a autumn leaves. Prickles of spice amongst crisp, red berry fruitiness. A nice chalky edge to fine tannins. Good length. Squirt of grapefruity freshness to close and keep the mouthwatering. There’s so much to like here. No brainer. Quality rose from the get go.

2017 Rosé - bang on for a new season

Always a consistent pleasure, this grenache rosé offers immediate attraction. This year the usual list of minor varieties like cabernet, mataro, shiraz and marsanne aren't listed, to highlight its grenache core. A pale pink shine, its granmotherly handbag of musk, and herbal/floral fragrances and, more importantly, its proper mouthfeel of strawberry pith and texture with apple and strawberry juiciness, is all about that grenache in a youthful rosé dress. Its tempered spice and all-round delicious drinking is bang on for a new season.

2017 Rosé - one of the best

Reliably good year after year, this is, quite simply, one of the best dry savoury rosés to be found in Australia. Made from 100% grenache fruit grown in the Barossa Valley, this has for several years been one of the style leaders as rosé transitioned from curiosity to mainstream. The back label tells the story: "Simply a light, crisp and beautifully aromatic wine that is best served chilled." Match it will anything from seared tuna to a Lebanese mezze platter.
